Moral: always try to make the world a beautiful place wherever you are.
We think this book is good because it has great characters, especially Miss Rumphius. We liked when Miss. Rumphius went to a tropical island because she got to meet different people. She grew older in all of her adventures. We liked the pictures because they were so life-like, it captured our attention. She made her pictures creative and different on each and every page. It reminds us of going on a vacation. It's like a great big adventure, doing anything I want. This was our first Barbara Cooney book. We would like to read another because her books are full of adventures. I (Nicole) felt so excited when I read this book. I couldn't wait to go onto the next page. I ( Priyanka) like when she is watching the sun come up. I like the pictures of the water and the background.
We recommend this book to people who love going on adventures and love beautiful pictures.
